What can I expect as a first time guest?
We realize that visiting a church for the first time can be an uncomfortable experience, but we don’t think it has to be that way. We want to make every attempt to ease your apprehension and make you feel welcome at Christ Community.
As you walk into each of our campuses, you will find people at the doors willing to help, and a place just for guests. If you need to know where to take your child or where the restrooms are, you can ask one of our friendly volunteers. If you want more information about our church, you should find printed material about Christ Community at the guest table. As you find a seat and settle into the service, don’t worry, we won’t ask you to stand as a first-time guest or embarrass you in any way. We view ourselves as a family, and we welcome you to join us!

What is the Evangelical Free Church?
The Evangelical Free Church of America is an association of some 1,500 autonomous churches united by a mutual commitment to serve our Lord Jesus Christ with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and obedience to the Word of God. We are committed to cooperate with one another in ministry and fellowship as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission which Christ has entrusted to His Church. The growing ministry of the EFCA currently extends to some 40 countries of the world.
The term “Evangelical” refers to our commitment to the proclamation of the Gospel and to the authority of Scriptures as being inerrant in the original autographs and the only safe and sufficient guide to faith and practice. The term “Free” refers to our form of church government as being congregational. Evangelical Free Churches depend upon the active participation of lay people in decisions and directions.

Tell me about baptism.
Baptism is one of the two practices our Lord commanded His church to practice until He returns (Matthew 28:19-20). Although baptism is not necessary for salvation, it is a symbolic act of obedience by those who have decided to be followers of Christ. The physical act of going down into the water publicly identifies with Jesus’ death and resurrection. Christ Community Church has at least two baptism services per year.
Tell me about communion.
Communion, also called the Lord’s Supper, is one of the two practices our Lord commanded His church to practice until He returns (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 11:26). Although it is not necessary for salvation, communion is an opportunity for followers of Christ to symbolically remember Christ’s work on the cross. The bread and juice are representatives of Christ’s body and blood. Communion is for all followers of Christ, not just members of Christ Community. It is served periodically.
